Health Issues:Ongoing cough
2002-12-21
Name: Meera Laxman My son seems to be getting a cough all the time, I would say atleast once oin 3 weeks! And I just don't know what to do. The doctos day it is a viral, which then leads to a bacterial infection, so each time I have to give him antibiotics. In the last 6 months I have given him antibiotics atleast 4 times. Can someone suggest something please. By the way, the chest x-ray is also clear.

Hi meera, its good if you can give some amount of warm water to the baby. It will surely help in cleaning the chest flem which gets formed in the kids throat and slowly stop cough

It is very common for kids to get sick often. Their body is not well equipped with all the antibodies that are needed to fight infections and bacteria and that is why they all sick very often and very easily.

Hello Meera,
I think giving excess anit biotics to the kids is also not so safe it may affect their immunity system also.So it would be better you go for any ayurvedic treatment then only your problem will be solved.

Very true! It works wonders. We sometimes forget the natural way of healing.

make sure that ur child drinks lots of water, have a humidifier run in case of indoors, take ur child for a walk in the morning fresh air, keep him hydrated and the bacteria wont grow, wash ur hands regularly especially before preparing his foods.
Antibiotics are not good for children as they destroy both good and bad bacteria,

Subject:  EFFECTIVE HOME REMEDY
As Jaya has mentioned earlier UR child might be sensitive and allergic to some things which u should observe & avoid taking him to polluted places etc; but as u have said that u r giving him antibiotics quite often should be avoided as it will not help him but will make him immune to them. Rather than giving medicines first try home remedies for his cough give him (some ginger juice, pinch of turmeric, some tulsi juice mixed in 1 tbsp of honey. If U give this twice in a day it will releive him of cough to a much greater extent.

Hi,
I saw your question.There is one remedy I have implemented for my son.Take few Ajwain(mint seeds) and same qty of salt in a handkerchief and make a knot at the top then make it hot on iron box and put it on your son's chest everyday night after he goes to sleep.make sure he is wearing one layer of t-shirt or some shirt before doing this.and also it should not hurt him if it does don't heat that potli..(the handkerchief of mint seeds and salt) too much.
This will relieves cough as well as kill the germs that might cause him cold and cough.
I have more remedy for cough.
regards
Pallavi

Also another reason can be bottle feeding. Do u bottle feed ur kid ??? Even sterlising the bottles need not kill all the bacteria and germs.
This is a common cause of throat infection for kids.

Subject:  Pollution may be the cause
I don't know where you live, but it is also happening to my son, and the docto's say it is becasue of pollution in Bombay. What they have suggested is that I keep my son away from polluted places, keep my windows up while driving, don't use any strong perfumes or agarbatis, and keep my carpets absolutely dust-free. Also, stuffed toys are a coimpletely NO-No! becaseu they gather dust the most. I have also found that my son keeps much better if I don't keep the AC on. (there is alot of duct coming through the vent becasue the pigeons love to dance on it!).
